FOX Sports Radio (FSR) is adding multimedia sports personality Clay Travis to its weekday morning lineup. Starting September 6th, “Outkick The Coverage with Clay Travis” will broadcast weekdays from 6am-9am ET on 220 stations nationwide, in addition to FOX Sports Radio’s channel on iHeartRadio, iHeartMedia’s industry-leading digital radio platform.
Travis will broadcast from Nashville, Tennessee, and the program will feature his informed, outspoken, fearless and often funny commentary on the latest sports headlines, as well as pop culture commentary, interviews and listener interaction. The FS1 college football analyst and founder of the wildly popular OutKickTheCoverage.com will continue to host his top-ranking Outkick The Show webcast, which is streamed live on Facebook, Periscope, YouTube, FOX Sports GO and FOXSports.com.
“Even though my wife disagrees, I’ve always thought there is no better sound to wake up to in the morning than my voice. Now everyone can hear it!” shared Travis. “While I’m very excited to take the next step in the direction of Outkick dominating all forms of media, I’d like to apologize in advance for hating your favorite team and thinking they’re overrated – unless you’re an Ohio State fan, in which case, I really do hate your team and they are overrated.”
“FOX Sports Radio’s Don Martin, Scott Shapiro and I couldn’t be more excited to add Clay Travis to this already strong lineup,” stated Julie Talbott, Premiere Networks President. “Clay is bold, opinionated and entertaining, and we’re confident Outkick the Coverage will be home to some of the most thought provoking sports-talk programming each morning, while driving immediate reaction from his large and engaged national audience.”
With Travis taking over mornings, Mike North and Andy Furman will no longer be part of FOX’s weekday lineup. They are expected to continue on the network hosting a Sunday program.
